Telecare and Personal Budgets: Managing the demand for care and support through assistive technologies

The ADASS West Midlands sponsored project to position Telehealthcare at the heart of care delivery (the Telecare project) seeks to contribute to the efficiency and improvement plans of councils in the region.

Specifically, the project is promoting and actively disseminating good practice in order to increase the use of telecare for people using personal budgets.

This report is the key deliverable of the project and incorporates:

  1. An evidence base of telecare models of practice, with a focus on demand, utilisation, funding and the relationship between telecare and personal budgets
  2. A case study analysis incorporating recommendations for improvement
  3. An evaluation of the key learning points.
